If your project/assignment is deemed outside of scope of IR35 you may operate via your Limited company. You will be required to provide various documentation related to your limited company including proof of insurances, proof of company bank account and VAT certification if registered. If you work through your Limited Company, a gross payment will be made for services provided and you will be responsible for taxes and complying with regulations.
From April 2021 changes to IR35 regulations meant that it is now the hiring client and employment agency’s responsibility to determine if a project/assignment would be deemed inside or outside of scope of IR35.
Simply put; the aim of the IR35 regulations is that anybody who works through an intermediary, e.g. “PSC” or “LLP” but would be deemed as an employee for tax purposes if they were not working through the intermediary, should pay similar taxes to other employees.
The easiest way to determine an ‘outside’ assignment would be to review:
- Is this role required for a specific job/specific definitive purpose?
- Will this person be wholly responsible for completing the task/job?
- Will this person have autonomy, will they hold full responsibility?
- Is there an intention for additional work/tasks over and above the requirement?
- Will they be reporting to/referring to a line manager for instruction/guidance?
